Inter Sack Mazzarri
Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has been appointed manager of Inter Milan. He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal and replaces Walter Mazzarri who was sacked by the Serie A club on Friday morning.
Mancini has been out of work since he left Turkish side Galatasaray during the summer in a disagreement over transfers.
The 49-year-old spent four seasons at Inter from 2004 to 2008 winning three successive Serie A titles for the first time in the club’s history. His side also set a Serie A record with 17 successive league victories in a run that stretched almost half a season.
Mancini was sacked when the club failed to win the Champions League in 2008 – they were eliminated by Liverpool in the round of 16.
He joins a side languishing in mid-table in Serie A, a position that cost Mazzarri his job. In a brief statement this morning Inter said:
“Walter Mazzarri has been dismissed as coach of the first team.
“The company thanks Mazzarri for the commitment, dedication and the seriousness with which he led the team in these 17 months.
“Today’s training session will be conducted by Giuseppe Baresi.”
Mancini was sacked by Manchester City are the club were beaten by Wigan Athletic in the 2013 FA Cup Final.
